In behalf of the DFG Research Training Group “Chemical Bond Activation” (GRK 2226) and the European Doctorate Network PCAM (Physics and Chemistry of Advanced Materials) we should like to invite you to participate at our Workshop “Future Perspectives in Catalysis” in Bremerhaven, Germany, and to discuss with some of the most original thinkers worldwide from science and industry about the coming trends in homogeneous, heterogeneous and bioenzymatic catalysis. Furthermore, the most exciting recent experimental and theoretical developments will be presented. The program will combine invited lectures with contributed poster presentations also presented orally in a minute presentation before the poster session, a fish bowl discussion and a think tank for PhD students on a boat as well as a transversal session. Social activities comprise a guided tour through the stunning Climate House which is the location of the workshop, a conference dinner on the restaurant sailing boat “Seute Deern” and a session for only PhD students during which you present your worst failures, accidents or unexpected findings due to involuntary mischiefs. Target PhD students are chemists, physicists, biologists and engineers curious about catalysis. Master students are also very welcome. There will be occasions to get information about the activities of the PCAM network and the possibilities to gain a European doctorate. The conference site is situated at the old harbor of Bremerhaven with a number of interesting museums to visit next to the conference site. The old Hanse town of Bremen is close by with its beautiful houses of the times of the Hanse and its medieval Schnoor quarter.
